In the 21st century, in the multiple patterns of artistic creation, military artists spring up and become the hard core of mainstream artistic creation, and Li Xiang is undoubtedly a practicer and leader of this group. Over the years, he devoted himself to creation and thinking, made great efforts to inherit the traditional culture and took an active part in absorbing the beneficial elements of Western art to build new ideas of contemporary Chinese paintings in his artistic practice. In creation, he breaks the traditional stereotype of “applying colors according to the category”, gives play to the double advantages of traditional brushwork spirit and rich and subtle color changes in Western paintings, shapes with color and changes color into ink to skillfully integrate the conversion between yin and yang of color and cold and warm contrast into traditional writing and freehand methods to illustrate the connotation of the times of the traditional brushwork and place the creative language of contemporary Chinese paintings in a new context. The more than 100 pieces of works on display exhibit his achievements in academic exploration over the years, cover landscape, portrait and theme creation, and comprehensively reflect the course of innovation and assiduous practice of an honest artist.
